GNU ddrescue is a data recovery tool. It copies data from one file or block device (hard disc, cdrom, etc) to another, trying hard to rescue data in case of read errors.

More obfuscation of the dd command, which besides already residing within Puppy Linux, it is your friend.

Obfuscation in the sense that Puppy Linux is an obfuscation of the linux kernel.

Or any script is an obfuscation of bash.

gnu ddrescue worked tirelessly overnight for me rescuing a crashed hard drive. After building an inital image file of the drive, it returns to the drive and splits up the data error areas into smaller and smaller chunks, recovering progressively more data, and updating the image file.

You can stop at any time with Ctrl-C. Interruptions will not crash it, lose the latest version of the image or much of the progressively finer work it does in recovery. It can be re-started at any time and will continue refining the image because it references its logfile to find out where it was. Once started, its actions are completely automatic, so you can go to bed and leave it to do its work. I suppose these are obfuscations on the "purity" of dd. So be it.

Thank you Aragon for making this valuable disk recovery tool available to Puppy users, and for updating it!

Thanks Aragon. I was able to save my important files on my laptop's hard drive that Ubuntu trashed.
